A Good Resource

Just a quick note today. I stumbled across a really good resource for artists aspiring to make a living doing what they love  –

If turning art into a career is something you want to do, please check this out.



I’m going camping this weekend for the first time in years. I’m really excited about it because I’ll be bringing my son. He’s 20 months old. I can’t wait to watch him explore his new surroundings. I’m bringing my camera, so I will be posting some inspiration pictures some time next week.

I have sketches for two more fish paintings. With packing and our trip it will be next week before I post those too.

Have a great weekend all!


The Longmont Art Link is tonight from 6-9pm. I will be showing at Maternal Instincts at 519 Main Street.  I will also be doing a demonstration. I’ll be working on Letter F of my alphabet. So if you are interested in my painting methods and are in the Longmont, Colorado area, I’d love to meet you.

In other news, I had a portfolio review at Art Mart on Pearl Street in Boulder. I will find out within a week or so whether they want to have my work in their space. The review went pretty well and I felt I was prepared, sporting my portfolio, resume, price list, and business card.

In addition to my ongoing alphabet project, I am working on a series of fish paintings. So far I have gotten a really positive response. I plan on doing more Koi paintings, but I am also working on some fantasy fish, including a sturgeon/lion fish hybrid.
